Also called Horned Melon, Spiked Melon, Jelly Melon, Kiwano, or our personal favorite, Cuke-a-saurus. The immature fruit is dark green with grey specks, ripening to bright orange. The flesh of the mature fruit is bright lime green and jelly like in consistency, with lots of seeds suspended in jelly capsules. The fruit grows on climbing vines with spiny, hairy leaves and produces prolifically with up to 100 fruits per vine. It is an annual plant that grows during the summer. The flavor is mild – with a sweet citrus cucumber flavor when green, and a combination of banana, kiwi and citrus when ripe.
